Message to clients

I work with individual adults who are wanting to make changes to feel "unstuck", but may not know where to start. Whether you want to let go of habits that no longer serve you, or manage unwanted intrusive thoughts, I can help you take back control of your life.

Using my lived experience as a bicultural woman, along with my training as a social worker, I approach therapy from a social justice lens.

When you work with me, I provide structure as we work towards your goals, as well as the tools you can use in between sessions.

Please reach out to schedule a consultation to see if we would be a good match.
